Heidfirst.Many thanks for your rapid answer. Bit of a shame really as they were fitted in  my previous RAV4. All the best,regards,kblevis.

Down to the legislation - if the complete lamp unit hasn't been certificated for use with LED it isn't legal to install them for use on road (it is legal to sell LED bulbs in the UK - the offence is carried out by the person installing/using not the vendor) & under the new MOT rules it should fail (if it gets picked up).

If the lamp unit has been certificated with LED then it should be so marked & you would be OK to retrofit LED bulbs.
